I've loved playing music since I was a child but I did have condition to study any musical instrument. Now I'm going to be 30 in some years, I remember my favourite and hope to start it. Can someone show me the way to self study organ? I've just borrowed an organ. :) Thank you!

I love piano very much. Self practice is most important thing for learning any musical instrument. I don't know how intelligent you are in playing piano, but i can give you suggestions to self study of organ. First bring a small organ, it would be better to learn by simple one so that there will not be problems in moving fingers fastly and timing. First (lead hand side) buttons are having low notes and notes goes on increasing as you move to heigher buttons. First take simple song or piece of music and try to play it. First don't think about timing only make a song and then listen it completely. Play organ by both hands(one by one) because if you want to become a professional player you must have to be all rounder. Timing is most important and difficult thing in organ so bring perfection in timing and you can do it by rehearsing each day. Sorry friend i can't teach you classically because i have almost zero classical knowledge but though i can make a songs. Best of luck...

Thanks for your good suggestion. Yesterday I came to the bookshop and take some guide books and one among them for children. Hope they will be useful for me. I think I need to be patient and self practice from the easy action as the way to put fingers, the way to sit in correct posture... But my fingers sometimes do not follow my mind :) and I can't combine my 2 hands concurrently. Many difficulties but I will try and your advices are valuable for me. Thank you!

Only practice practice practice is solution for it. It is the common problem for all newlearners. It is better to learn these stuffs at childhood. Teach your children to play piano, because at this age fingers will move fastly and will very helpful to them ahead to play fast songs.

hello.good day! I also love music and started playing such musical instrument. I'm playing string instruments such as guitar and violin and few in organ. I never had some musical lessons because it cost a lot so I learned playing only by myself. I would suggest to go in online tutorials out there. There's a lot of that things in the web specially in youtube. Some called it YoutubeUniversity, and its lot of fun. Hope I helped!
